On the debut of ‘Good in Chicago’ we featured a Smoke Daddy cameo as I chowed down on wings & rib tips from the reliable Division St. BBQ standby. The taste must’ve lingered lovingly – because I found myself at Smoke Daddy again yesterday. I met up with my buddy Danny, who had graciously offered up his place for filming purposes, to return his keys. He suggested we sit down for a meal. This time I didn’t mess around – ordered a full slab of baby back ribs. I chose cornbread and mac & cheese as my two sides plus a side salad. Pulaski Pils to wash it all down. Danny got the St. Louis ribs with pit beans & mac & cheese following a cup of chili to start and a Daisy Cutter.
There’s a reason this place has stood the test of time on an ever-changing Wicker Park street. Quality and smoky taste. 3 exceptional sauces in bottles on your table, too. Here’s to great BBQ.
